What is most valuable?

The features that have been most valuable in our situation is that this can be used as an enterprise solution and the fact that it is open-source. Partly because it is open-source, it has a lot of… more»

How has it helped my organization?

The product has helped our business by allowing us to become more efficient in data handling. In this way, it has helped us quite a lot. We had several legacy systems, and because we had a lot of… more»

What needs improvement?

I think the features of many solutions can be improved, but not all have to be and they are not all urgent. The thing we need most is better support. It is hard for us to deploy systems because… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

Before I was at the company they had used a proprietary system. There were a lot of homemade, in house, systems. That caused some compatibility issues that needed to be resolved. Using Open Legacy, we… more»

What other advice do I have?

If I were to rate this product on a scale of one to ten, I think a five is good enough. The system is good and can accomplish a lot but because support is not so good, we had many problems we should… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I don't know if the company actually evaluated other solutions when they brought on Open Legacy as I was not yet in the company at the time. But the investment in the system will probably mean it will… more»

What is most valuable?

We are able to take old legacy customer data and use REST APIs to give customers the best experience. We can do everything via mobile, including payments and transactions between our customers and their suppliers. OpenLegacy is definitely… more»

How has it helped my organization?

Using OpenLegacy, the exposure of services is far easier and quicker. In many cases, exposure of services requires just a few clicks and takes only minutes. In very complex cases, it still only takes half a day. Without OpenLegacy, it would… more»

What needs improvement?

Debugging and logging for programmers. We would also be more than happy if the product had the option to work in the opposite direction – the ability to consume REST/SOW services in the outer world from the mainframe.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

No, we did not have a solution that could be this flexible and give us the results we need.

What other advice do I have?

OpenLegacy provides a way to go from the outside world to the legacy mainframe, to move the old standard application to a REST API application. New digital services can be created in a few clicks and this can be done easily by COBOL… more»

What is most valuable?

Ease of deployment. OpenLegacy produces a war file which includes everything you need to deploy a Tomcat server.

How has it helped my organization?

OpenLegacy opens the door to connect modern web products to our old legacy system. Before OpenLegacy, we would either transition our entire system (a huge undertaking) or do painful workarounds to allow for innovative web products to send data back into our system of record.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see SSL out-of-the-box. OpenLegacy certainly does SSL, but it was not the default for our use case. We are currently working with OpenLegacy to cross the SSL bridge and suspect that most users will want to do the same.

OpenLegacy Questions

What is OpenLegacy?

OpenLegacy helps organizations quickly launch innovative digital services by extending their core back-end systems to the web, mobile and cloud in days or weeks versus months. Our microservice-enabled API integration and management software quickly reduces project backlog by automating and accelerating microservices and API creation, deployment, testing and management from core applications, mainframes and databases. Together, business and IT teams can quickly, easily and securely meet consumer, partner or employee demands for digital services without modernizing or replacing core systems, and without special programming skills or invasive changes to existing systems and architectures. OpenLegacy is designed for ongoing management of microservices APIs and is based on open standards, so our software plays nice with your current technology stack and supports agile, DevOps and continuous development.
